county sheriff deputies chased the suspect, 29-year-old into a san francisco alleyway and then repeatedly hit him. the sheriff office is investigating allegations that a third deputy took a necklace and used it to bribe witnesses not to report the beating. the neck necklace is seen in photographs but it has since disappeared. >> if those allegations are true, then the deputy or deputies that took items from him and gave them away are no better than the criminals they arrested. >> after months of saying no deputies activated their body cameras, the sheriff office says one of the deputies in the video may have accidentally done so. petrof stole a car here in alameda county and led deputies on a high-pede chase before of being tracked down in that

castro 66 degrees and brentwood. into the weekend, we're looking ahead. even though it's only tuesday. why not? we will have some highs in the upper 60s to lower 70s. beautiful weekend ahead. a lot more sunshine. our weather does stay dry, but then as we look ahead to next week, a quick look at the futurecast shows that by sunday we'll start to see a few here clouds increasing and then on monday we'll have a slight chance of rain, but as of now, these weather systems kind of calming down and hopefully we'll get some more rain in here as we go into next week. that's a look at the forecast. let's head over to traffic now with anthony. >> we were talking about that game this evening. the golden state warriors. they have a game at 7:30. so, this is light and smooth and no problems. but just keep in mind this ing some extra company with you on 880. switching over to the maps, you'll notice lots of green and things not that active. a new accident just before the san mateo bridge on 880 south
where laura just showed you. really the rest of the east bay just showed you. the south bay, again, lots of green there, again. no concerns across the bay right now. guys back to you. we'll watch out for that. watch out for apple pay. facebook now getting in the game. >> for that and the rest of the news we turn to landon dowdy. happy tuesday, landon. >> hey, there, sam and kris. happy tuesday to you, as well. futures are lower this morning and the markets ending mostly flat on the lightest trading volume day of the year. look for data on home prices and consumer confidence and also fed chair janet yellin speaks about the economy this afternoon. the dow raising 19 points and the nasdaq slipping six points to 4766. uber drivers are the only on-demand drivers taking up the u.s. economy. older workers, especially women, are increasingly filling in as
contractors and a wide-range from highway inspectors. since 2005, those types of workers have climbed by more than half, rising tanearly 16% of the workforce as companies look to shed nonforecasts. also, facebook lets you send cash to friend through its messenger app but they lost their ambitions and working on a way to let you use messenger to pay for items in stores which would put it in direct competition with apple sppay an others. we'll turn now to breaking news from the middle east. an hours long standoff involving a hijacker who diverted a plane that was leaving from alexa alexandria, egypt, intended for cairo is now over. that plane was sitting on the tarmac for hours. seven hostages remaining on that plane. three passengers, four crew
members and a man claiming to have an explosive belt that was negotiating with authorities there in cypress. we just learned that hostage situation is over. no reports of injuries at this point to report to you. a live update in ten minutes. and now it's to decision 2016. the three republican presidential candidates still standing will face off in a town hall in wisconsin tonight. >> that is where 42 delegates are at stake making that state's primary next week crucial. tonight's town hall in milwaukee where donald trump and ted cruz are neck and neck in the polls. john kasich is trailing well behind them. voters are going to get a chance to ask the candidates questions directly tonight. a major announcement from senator marco rubio. >> this is interesting. he is taking himself off our ballot. not entirely unexpected since he did pull out of the presidential race earlier this month but he s not issued a statement after
asking his name be removed. we talked with analysts and they say it is likely he wanted to make sure he didn't siphon any votes away from ted cruz or john kasich. many people in the republican base are trying to prevent donald trump from winning any more delegates if he can't clinch. donald trump can't clinch it before june or at the california primary, then it goes on to that convention. >> to cleveland. that would be interesting. coming up next, owls causing some problems in the east bay. how they are slowing down construction of a school. also happening right now, as we just told you a tense standoff overseas in cypress that is just now over. a man who hijacked an egyptair plane has been detained. authorities have already stated this is not a case of terrorism. we have a live report at the top of the hour. you can link to more on our facebook page. stanford has a new men's basketball coach. the school introduced jarrett yesterday to replace johnny
on t peniula a the st ofthe bay 2shotad l tosso wx welcome back. meteorologist kari hall told us the temperatures would dip, but my heater was cranking this morning, kari. >> one of those mornings. you need to turn the heater up on full blast and make sure the kids have a nice, warm coat before they head out. tomorrow will feel much more comfortable as we go into the next few days. we go from below average to above average and this weekend is looking really nice right at
about 70 degrees on saturday with more sunshine on the way. another look at the forecast coming up. let's head over to the tri-valley with anthony. >> 70s for the weekend. i'm so happy now. thank you, kari hall. thank you. it's traffic tuesday, mind you. which means you know what that means, it gets a little dicy here and there. right now looking pretty good. 580 through dublin and want to show you what is happening on the maps because we're starting to see that build coming through the altamont pass just east of livermore. head over towards dublin and no problems, but keep in mind as i mentioned, it is a traffic tuesday, so you know what happens and you start to see the accidents pile up. nothing as far as anything bad is concerned across the rest of the east bay. same deal across the peninsula and the south bay. wide-open lanes and lots of green on the map. let's keep it that way. back over to you, sam and kris. a private ferry service is trying to go public and hopefully make the commute for
bay area employees easier. the private service is called prop sf and it has been running for about six months now. similar to google bus, tech companies pay for employees to get back and forth to work. if this is approved by the state, the public then could use the ferries, too. >> walk on a ferry and get to my office which is right on the water on redwood city it would right now.fe easier than it is >> a decision is expected in the next few months. the company hopes to have the service up and running by this summer. a million dollar delay and caused in part by owls. one of a few hurdles of a construction of a martinez school that they're facing right now. took a while to find a suitable place to build. the independent study school. the school district finally settled this location at this location, i should say. first construction was delayed over contaminated soil and now
owls. you can see one of the owls in this photo or you could have if you looked hard enough, one of them is actually pregnant. >> i thought we would be able to actually construct the school and move mid-year this year and now it's delayed. it's not going to happen this year. >> nearly 100-year-old federal law that requires the owls to have babies before the nest can be removed is the issue here. all the delay is costing is the school district about $1 million. well, first responders who sprang into action when a train derailed are going to be honored today for their efforts. >> a mud slide forced an ace commuter train off the traction during the middle of heavy rains. might remember these images of one car submerged in the water and amazingly nobody died in this crash. passengers had to trudge two miles to get to the waiting area and alameda county supervisors will recognize to get passengers
the safety they said that they were surprised that they didn't find anybody that didn't survive. >> they called it a miracle. coming up, the latest on that egyptair hijacking situation which is now over. as we look live at pictures. after about six hours of standoff. crew members and some passengers taken off the plane, at least one person flying through the cockpaul cockpit window.
a neighborhood on edge following a brutal attack in a san francisco neighborhood. we hear from one of the victims as the hunt to find the suspect continues. new legal trouble for alameda county sheriff office over the videotape beating of a car thief suspect. i'm bob redell. breaking overnight, a plane hijacking finally over with the suspect arrested. it happened in the last 20 or 30 minutes. we are tracking developments overseas.
